What is the difference between Hospice and Palliative Care?

Why this resource is helpful:

Hospice is a comprehensive approach to end-of-life care that provides emotional, spiritual, physical, and psychological support tailored to each patient's needs.
Quoted From: https://www.luminahospice.org/hospice-care/

"The goals of both hospice and palliative care are very similar: to relieve symptoms of a serious illness, provide comfort from pain, and improve quality of life for the patient and family. Hospice care is a specific type of palliative care delivered when a patient has a prognosis of six months or less and is no longer seeking curative treatment."
